The reason most women set on a social treadmill and stay there is that they are scared to death to break a rule of etiquette for fear someone will think they don't know better. And so they wear themselves out entertaining people they don't car« • hoot about because they are scared to death of being "obligated." The hostess Jooked distracted i and tired and the enthusiasm with which she greeted her dinner iKueatj seemed a little strained A , discerning guest could almost hear I her think, "Well, thank heaven, I I've paid off these people." But her relief will be shortlived i of course. Because the paldoff guests will have to pay her off i and in no time at all she'll be in-1 acted again. ! So goes the social treadmill, i round and round, to which so rrii- I ny women tie themselves. Time Waited .

And It would be so easy to do. If the Smiths bore you. then decline Mrs. Smith's first invitation and her second and third if they are forthcoming That rules the Smiths out of your life. But accept that first Invitation and you're on the treadmill, for: years, perhaps, you'll entertain the i Smiths and be entertained by them, simply because neither you nor Mrs Actor Setl R«e«r4 BOSTON (UP)—Owen Martin who plays the federal marshal In the touring company of "Oklahoma," has appeared In 2,276 consecutive performances, said to b» the longest run without a break any actor has ever had in an American play.
